Dan Boaz - President's Summary

Dan Boaz is an accomplished entrepreneur and executive leader with a strong portfolio of successes. In the transportation industry since 1985, he started as a driver at UPS and worked his way through management as an industrial engineer. Dan quickly realized to achieve success there would be failures along the way, and took that risk founding Vital Express in 1997. Fueled by his enthusiasm, energy and experience, Vital Express grew from a start-up to multimillion-dollar enterprise. His strong work ethic and integrity have earned him numerous awards and commendations.

Currently, in his pursuit for excellence and the most formidable forward-thinking venture of his career, he has taken the next great hurdle in founding AirFreight.com, which offers elite freight services in a best-in-class segment of the expedited transportation industry.

Dan’s overall strategy is based on catching market transitions that are taking place with the next generation transportation customers that are evolving from the Internet. His mission is to reinvent the way people do business with transportation providers and to shape the future of the freight industry through the Internet by generating unprecedented business opportunities that will create a whole new way of doing business.

AirFreight.com operates as a global provider of premium freight services in the expedited transportation industry. Services include: Air Freight, Air Cargo, Air Charter, Expedited Ground Transport and Just in Time Delivery for the Time Critical Shipping Business.

AirFreight.com is earning an exceptional reputation for an evolution in the transportation industry and is largely responsible for its enormous growth in a sector that suffered a tremendous downturn with the sudden reversal of the global economy. The Management is devoted to the ongoing expansion of its brands, particularly in the Expedited Freight segment of the industry.
